the greatest looking men i've ever met. god ever made. >> every time i see this picture i say to him when he is standing there, boy, does my timing suck. to which he looks at me and says so does mine. that's the recipe for a happy marriage, people. humor. >> we are in day two of our fun little game show we're playing. we're bringing people in from outside and we're having them spin the wheel that we have over there, and sair is a is /* /- -- sara is like -- >> those people love us out there. >> you could win some prizes. >> we got a crazy crowd out here, guys. they can't wait. >> you know it's important. >> all righty. i know we got you, sara. >> we don't care if it's a small crowd. we just want an enthusiastic one. >> we're going to choose -- we're going to pick a person later in the chat, and we are excited. i think i might have my eye on somebody. >> i bet you do. >> you know what i'm saying?
2:06am
>> she's eyeing you. >> we do want to shout out to barbara walters who is at the age of 83 suffering from what we all consider to be a childhood disease of chickenpox. and she's been hospitalized for more than a week. >> you heard that probably -- i guess it was nine days ago she fell down, and there was i think cindy adams said in the new york post today that she actually -- she didn't slip, she fainted. we don't know from barbara, but, anyway, while this was all going on, it turns out that she got the chickenpox, which people say is so rare among even people over 60, so it's got to be one of those things that is -- >> i bet it's painful too. if it's anything like shingles. we send our love to you, barbara. listen, this is a woman who rarely falls, if you know what i'm saying. >> this is one of the more active human beings. >> and strong. >> strong like bull. >> she is strong like bull. >> we have a fun segment coming up, and it's called friend-fluence. we have a quote. here it is. you are the average of the five people you spend the most time with.
2:07am
>> who are you quoting? >> you are the average -- i can't remember but it's a quote. >> is it anon? >> no. >> think about the five people you spend the most time with. you are the average of them. some people say, gosh, my friends are so bitchy, and you say, well, that's why that's your group or sometimes you're with people that -- >> that explains your attitude is basically what you are saying. >> you attract what's within you. you do. >> friends have a huge influence on how you do what you do, what you're like, and sometimes if you have to criticize a friend, if there's something that your friend is doing that's bothering you and you have to say it, it's a hard thing to do if you are a good friend to someone. >> that's the whole point. if you are a good friend, you will find a way to say it. >> in a nice way. >> we use the term loosely. too loosely. >> friends? >> yeah. >> same way when you use the word love loosely. you know? >> we'll have a segment on this. we've all had the kind of friend who is doing the same thing throughout our whole life. let's say she keeps hitting the same brick wall. she's dating the same kind of guy over and over and she comes
2:08am
and says, oh, my gosh, i'm heartbroken, but she keeps doing it and doing it. after awhile you get sick of hearing about it i think. >> they won't take the advice that they've asked you for. if you respect me and want my advice and i'm happy to give it to you, at least try. don't -- you know? um -- oh, shoot. i'll think of it in a second. my own quote, and i can't remember it. >> it must have been a good one. >> if you settle for what you got, you deserve what you get. i have said that many times. you're settling for this in your life. you're the only one that can make a choice that's different from the choice you keep making, but you keep settling for what you've go. therefore, ergo not to be confused with "are go" you deserve it because you can change things. >> i think it's hard because i surround myself -- a lot of my friends are -- they tell me the truth when it's an important subject, but i think they're cheerleaders, and actually in a world where there are lots of critics and people are always saying something, sometimes you
2:09am
need cheerleaders, someone who looks at you and cheers you on and doesn't see the cracks all the time. >> but a real friend will do both. will do both. you will never feel -- what's so funny about that? >> cracks. they thought some crack humor. >> that's our crew. you want to know -- there's a whole point. show me your friends, and you will show me who you are. >> that's it. >> take a look around. i've always been grateful that my kids for the most part -- a few of cody's friends in college i wasn't so crazy about. for the most part they choose great friends. >> that's really important. speaking of friendships, the real housewives of beverly hills is -- >> are they real friends, though? >> i don't know. >> let's watch a clip and see if they're real friends. >> you brought up that -- >> i brought that up because she is suing me. >> hold on. >> i want to go back because -- i don't want to go backwards. >> because i don't know that you do. >> yeah.
2:10am
but it's nobody's business anyway. why are you -- >> i agree. that's the point, yolanda. >> shhh. . you see, i like yolanda. >> she's the voice of reason. >> i just met her downstairs. she is david foster's relatively new wife. they've not been married that long. she's lovely. we've known david a long, long time. never seen him so happy. she is the voice of reason in all that insanity and botox. >> not that there's anything wrong with botox. >> it's fun to watch this show, and we're going to speak with both of them coming up ando get their take on things because apparently brandi, the one who was screaming this -- >> troublemaker. >> -- was at a book signing yesterday and said something so terrible we can't even say on the air about leann rimes awful out loud. >> good thing she didn't say anything terrible about your book. be grateful for that. i think brandi is coming on our show soon. she has a book out about drunk tweeting. >> there you go. sounds nice. >> who is this kid? >> this is a kid from youtube,
2:11am
and it's a kid who they say will lift you up, will make you feel inspired. let's look. >> what if michael jordan had quit. >> he did quit. >> no, he retired. but before that in high school, what if he quit when he didn't make the team? he would have never made "space jam." and i love "space jam." what will be your" space jam"? what will you create to make the world awesome? nothing if you keep sitting there. that's why i'm talking to you today. this is your time. this is my time. this is our time. we can make every day better for each other. if we're on the same team let's start acting like it. we got work to do. we can cry about it or we can dance about it. i don't know everything. i'm just a kid. but i do know this. let's get to it.
2:12am
>> adorable. >> his name is robbie, and i guess he has three videos now. he is going to be on the earlier hour with tomorrow, hoda woman, but he also has something called osteogenesis brita -- it's brittle bone disease. that means he maybe shouldn't be dancing, shouldn't be that active. but you can see that's how he wants to be. it's just his spirit. >> he lifts you up. what are you going to sit there, or do something? >> he is precious. >> he is adorable. >> i want my picture taken with him. >> yes, indeed. we have good news for miss alabama. you remember her. she was in the stands. she's the girlfriend of the quarterback of -- >> alabama. the team that won. >> exactly. >> yeah. >> i can't really remember the game. she became famous for that shot in the stands, and now she's getting another shot at being on tv. >> yes, she's going to be on "the inside edition." >> on the sidelines during the super bowl. >> good for her. >> that was her first day on the job on friday. >> isn't that weird how that happens though?
2:13am
i remembered it happened that way for pamela anderson. remember she was sitting in the stands and she was wearing some t-shirt, and they stayed on her and her -- >> i'm sure they did. >> for a long time, and as a result hen she got that great -- i mean, she started her whole career. >> that's unbelievable. >> yeah. >> it is time for us to pick someone from outside. >> our people. >> this is for the game we're going to do later in the show. >> okay. >> i got to get the guy going like this. >> wait. which one? >> do it again. >> no. this one. yeah. go. >> let me see. >> get crazy. hoda is picking. look your best. >> i'll take the blonde with the scarf. >> blonde with -- right here? >> yes. >> yeah! >> faceoff, baby. >> all right, kids. going to be fun. we're going to play a game in just a few minutes. >> all righty. now, it's also time for johnson's baby of the week announcement. >> we're starting something new. in conjunction with johnson's baby, we're celebrating moms everywhere. every week we are going to

2:18am
>> there's a fine line. i mean, the friendships are so powerful, and your words are so powerful, and as a good friend it's hard to navigate that balance, but i think it's important if you are truly a good friend to say the things that your friend needs to hear, but from the right place. >> it's how you say it. >> it's so how you say it. >> a good friend is supportive most of the time, but she'll occasionally have a more difficult conversation with you, which you can really learn from if you are open from it. but don't be cruel. ask her questions that allow her to sort of talk about herself rather than being blunt. >> let's tree tend your friend has a boyfriend who is like all the other boyfriends she's ever had. >> just as bad as the last one. >> she's crying and telling you, oh, what a terrible thing. what is the right thing for a good friend to say to her? >> i think a good friend says, you know, i feel like you've been unhappy before in your relationships. do you think there's a pattern here? . >> do you think there's a pattern? >> what is the pattern here? what type of man are you falling for? is that the right type of person for you? >> why do you think you're crying. why do you think it's not working? make them answer their own
2:19am
questions. >> then it sounds like you're interviewing them. >> there's a fine line how to do that as well. >> i think the first time it's one kind of a conversation. the tenth time it's got to be a different kind of conversation. just like parenting in a weird way. first time your child does something it's a little no, no, no, we're not going to do it again, but the time they've done it a tenth time you have a different conversation. >> should you just take some -- should certain friends be sort of put on the sidelines? should you -- >> she means dumped in a nice way. >> break up with friends? >> well, i mean, friendship is a two-way street, and you have to be getting something positive from the friendship too, and if your friendship becomes dominated by the same problem over and over again and you have had the conversation and you've tried to get her, you know, to come to a place to realize what she needs to realize in order to get herself out of her own sort of pickle, maybe it's time to reconsider, you know, is she really the right kind of friend for you? how much time in your day do you have for this? >> how do you get out of that, though? >> a lot of girls have competitive friends like you get
2:20am
your haircut, they get theirs. they like theirs better. you lose five pounds. they lose eight pounds. what's the right way to navigate that kind of friendship? sometimes they're good friends minus that trait. >> right. friends are powerful influence, and you have to realize when it's a bad influence and when it's a good influence. i think you know overall if a friend is supportive and really cares about you versus that friend who is consistently undermining you and not really supporting the core of who you are and your identity. . isn't it true that what goes in comes out? say you're around a negative person all the time. that negativity is going to seep into you and it's just -- it will. >> you have to make sure you have plenty of positive friends and maybe have that one friend who is a little negative and she offers something else, so that's okay. >> funny. >> overall you want positive friends. the flip side of this, speaking of the two-way street, is that you have to be open to criticism from your friends because they can see patterns that you can't see. >> let them know it's because you love them that you're doing it. >> okay, ladies. thank you for coming on and joining us. >> they don't like each other at all.
2:21am
>> all right. they were plucked off the plaza. >> oh, they are. >> which game are we going to play? >> we'll find out later. >> calling all the single ladies. sara shows us how to get a date for valentine's day. i never like valentine's day. but when you wake up s, in the middle of the night it can be frustrating. it's hard to turn off and go back to sleep. intermezzo is the first and only prescription sleep aid approved for use as needed in the middle of the night when you can't get back to sleep. it's an effective sleep medicine you don't take before bedtime. take it in bed only when you need it and have at least four hours left for sleep. do not take intermezzo if you have had an allergic reaction to drugs containing zolpidem, such as ambien. allergic reactions such as shortness of breath or swelling of your tongue or throat may occur and may be fatal. intermezzo should not be taken if you have taken another sleep medicine at bedtime or in the middle of the night or drank alcohol that day. do not drive or operate machinery
